Cold Weather Scavenger

We had a cold weather scavenger hunt a couple of weeks ago to get our bodies out of the house and back outside.  The girls loved watching the geese and squirrels, and basically just running around like crazy.  I want to get better at getting outdoors even when the weather isn't ideal for it.  There's so much we miss when we cage ourselves up indoors for months at a time.  This fun, happy (chilly) day was the perfect example of that!

Before we left we popped on our Minnetonka boots and shot some pictures for their new lookbook while we were out.  You can check out the lookbook here and see what we did with our scavenger hunt findings.  :)

  3. Poesy always looks so curious, so I'm sure she loved this! Your girls couldn't ask for better parents. You are one of my biggest inspirations.

  7. I love their shoes and boots! These pictures are great - a scavenger hunt is a great thing for the cold months because it keeps everyone focused on a fun and mutual goal even if it is cold.

  8. Such cute photos! For whatever reason in Austria it's really warm for winter days... it has still about 4°C! I hope, that it will be more winterly on Christmas Eve! :)

  9. I have the hardest time getting outside during this time of year. I haaate being cold, but staying in so much definitely doesn't boost my morale... Hah. It looks like you guys had a blast. Your girls are so precious!

  12. I read your blog regularly but rarely comment (sorry - must start doing this more!), but just wanted to say how beautiful and inspirational it is. Your photos are always truly stunning, and your gorgeous girls are so lucky to have such a beautifully documented childhood.
    Much love and Merry Christmas,
